Hmmm... I'll bite. What is it? Where does the engine, radio and other stuff go?

It is going to be a pusher, and all the gear will be built into little aerodynamic boxes. I'll post some more as i get it going, but wanted to see some other peoples designs that may be out of the ordinary.

Have you tried flying this design before? I take it, it will be powered by an electric motor?
I don't get too crazy but i do like to come up with my own designs usually of conventional
configuration. My last can be seen here http://www.tjlewis1.rchomepage.com/html/projects.html
My upcoming winter project here http://tjlewis1.rchomepage.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=10
Please post pics of it finished ready for flight.

Here's a crazy one.

Just a set of sketches right now, beginning an actual design study in model form.

Flying lawnmowers are definitely in this category.

Got any pics?

Here they are. This lawnmower is made out of depron&balsa. Uses 3 standard servos and is powered by magnum .15. Flies quite well, although it still needs a lot of trimming.

Hello out there in RC world! I have a wierd little airplane. Actually, I HAD a wierd little airplane. Tell me what you think. It was made out of foam board presentation type paper stuff. You know, the stuff you get at a craft store for a couple of bucks a sheet. It flew great, but the ground handling was awefull! Let me know.

Dick, nice looking plane. I'm confused about the ground handling, though. Is it going to be hand launched? Or is there more to the landing gear that you still have to add?
